"In 1959, Gerald Howson was sent to Poland by >>The Queen<< magazine. He was supposed to come back to England with photographs depicting the Cold War reality of our country. This inconspicuous Englishman who did not speak any Polish packed two Leica cameras in his backpack along with a portable darkroom. His journey began in Lublin, continued to Krakow, and ended in Warsaw. He also visited Auschwitz, from which only one photograph survived; this, however, is a very important one. For Gerald, it was the most important photograph from the whole trip.
